Spectacular tour!!

Spectacular day with everything covered in the cost with no surprises!’ Staff was attentive and friendly and the lunch was wonderful, overlooking a cove where we swam. I highly recommend this tour! Higher cost than others but worth every dollar!

The Blue Cave was the least memorable part of our day. We loved this trip because of our stop on one of the other islands where we were cooked a very good meal and had access to a very quiet beach where our group swam. We met some fun people that came on the trip with us. Our guides took us to a quiet bay and we were able to swim and snorkel while we waited to see the Blue Cave. This way we didn’t have to wait in line for over an hour like everyone else. Angelo the owner was a funny guy and very helpful. We will recommend to friends.

Exquisite trip not to be missed
Eusden_S

We had a wonderful day trip from Split to Vis and Hvar. Unfortunately our trip went out a day after strong winds and waves, and the Blue Cave was closed (by the government vendor). Angelo had predicted the weather would be suboptimal a few days before, but we chose to go anyways because it was the only time that would fit our schedule. We had a large speed boat with enough space for everyone on board (about 15 of us + the crew members). Pia and Tino were great hosts, always checking on us if we needed drinks or anything else. The food on their private villa in Vis was amazing - authentic local chef preparing grilled fish for everyone. The sights and beaches were beautiful, and we took a swim in the splendid Adriatic. We had some more hiccups along the way, but that's expected as part of weather and travel. But most of all, Angelo was proactive in followups and explained the rare circumstances of things not going as expected and made things right. He's direct and honest and I would not hesitate to book with his tour and crew again!

Book this tour, you won’t regret it! Incredible day!

This tour is a must, this specific one. The crew (Tino and Pia) and coordinator (Angelo) were amazing. It is a very personalized tour to ensure the guests have the chance to visit beautiful islands with ample time to sightsee, swim and eat. But, they also ask the guests what they would like to do and provide options to choose from. You will not be disappointed and I highly recommend this tour and group. My wife, our baby and I had an amazing time and literally got to know everyone on our boat and everyone had a blast with our baby girl. We got to see some incredible views, swim in some amazing blue and clear waters and ate some freshly caught whole fish. Do it, book this tour and enjoy your vacation even more!

This trip was absolutely amazing! Pia was the best hostess ever, providing us with everything we needed and more. It was really nice to not go to the most touristy places, but rather see what the crew thought was worth seeing. Would really recommend this trip!

Pia and Tino made the trip so comfortable and fun. Lots of stories and beautiful stops at several islands with plenty of time to wander. Such personalized service with a wonderfully authentic lunch served on a private island. We would highly recommend this trip. Be sure Pia will be on board ❤️ — Ron and Kelly

What an amazing day to explore Blue Cave, Vis and Hvar! Host and crew went above and beyond to ensure everyone was at ease and well hydrated. Our group was small, diverse and super fun group. Weather was perfection. Very much appreciated the grilled lunch and avoided unnecessary crowds at popular sites. Will definitely recommend this experience.

Absolutely amazing! Rex and Tino were fantastic, super sweet and laidback. The destinations speak for themselves, but they take you places no other tour does. That’s true! With a home cooked meal that’s so delicious, the private sandy beach is the a cherry on top. You’ll regret not taking this tour!

Blue Cave Review
Gerald_J
, Sep 2021
The owner hyped this tour as super-luxurious. By this measure it did not measure up. Breakfast consisted of donuts and croissants put on a table with some napkins -- no cappuccino, no cafe latte, not even good ole American coffee. Large plastic bottles of soda and beer were placed on the same table with little plastic glasses. The crew made no offer to serve anyone, nor did they cleanup the used cups and leftover crumbs. My wife was even asked to stow away the snorkels that had been used by everyone. Neither the seaman nor the captain made any effort to describe the history, geography, or biology of the area. The boat was not especially fast -- about 24 knots -- and it was very noisy. The one highlight of the trip was the tour guide at the Blue Cave. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and personable. And, of course, the Blue Cave was awesome.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Karen, Thank you for your dubious feedback. It is clearly written at the tour's description page, and again at the "included" section - THERE'S NO COFFEE ON THE BOAT - THE COFFEE IS SERVED AT OUR PRIVATE RESTAURANT. Furthermore, I personally do a briefing every single morning specifically emphasizing THERE'S NO COFFEE AT THE BOAT. The boat is "not that fast, about 24 knots"? As opposed to boat's description stating "500hp aluminum boat, CRUISING SPEED OF 24 KNOTS"!?!? And, btw, that's not fast? I'm sorry, I guess we should've done the tour going at the boat's maximum speed, as cars, boats, busses and trains usually do, full throttle.. Oh, wait, that's simply not the case.. "The speedboat was noisy"? Wow, you don't say! Maybe if it went faster the noise would be lesser? We've received some ridiculous reviews before ("the sea is too cold in October, people on Hvar are not as pretty as they think, an exchange office at some islands had a bad usd to kuna exchange rate" - just to mention some) and this one easily makes the top 5. My advice for you in the future - READ BEFORE BOOKING, AND TRY TO MEMORIZE  IT. You can not buy a 300g steak and complaint it wasn't 500g steak later! Or paying for a black BMW and complaining to the store it's not a white Mercedes. I'm done. Cheers Angelo

It was amazingly spent day on a boat with a very friendly and helpful crew. Breakfast and drinks on a boat, then lunch on a charming island (the most delicious grilled fish I have ever tried), and of course amazing diving places and blue caves. All was nicely organised, giving it a true all-inclusive experience. It can seem like a bit pricey, but definitely worth every penny.

Everything about this tour was amazing. The guides Pia and Tino, the ride on the speedboat, all the locations, the food and the other guests. Overall the blue cave was the least interesting part of the tour. After the blue cave the real fun started. I enjoyed especially the several swimming stops around hidden parts of the islands. Jumping off the boat and snorkeling in turquoise waters was the best part for me. But everything else, like the lunch on the island Vis where great, too. We’ve been also served drinks constantly throughout the whole tour. Beer, wine, water and soft drinks as much as we wanted. So the atmosphere on the boat was really great. This tour deserves more than 5/5 rating. Giving this experience less than 5 is simply a joke! Regards Tomek P.S. We also had good music on board thanks to a DJ from Amsterdam, who also was a guest of the tour. ;-)

I don’t even know where to start! The service was exceptional, the sights were breath taking and the day was unforgettable. Please please take Angelos advice and make friends while on board, it was so great to enjoy the day with people from all over the world! Pia was the star of the show! She is the jack of all trades the way she jumps all around the boat taking care of everybody and making conversation with everyone and constantly checking on us all to see if there was anything we needed. Would definitely recommend this boat tour to anyone traveling to split! PIA WE LOVE YOU!!!!

The ad doesn’t scream...

The ad doesn’t scream there’s 2 separate boats! After seeing the first 4 photos of the open top boat! We were pretty confused as to why it doesn’t say you could be on either boats! It seems like the first 4 photos are great selling point as we were slightly gutted when we were put onto a different boat. Everything else was great!
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Thomas, Thank you for your review. Actuality, we have nothing to do with the image placements on Viator. We upload photos, choose only the main image and that's it. The boats are exactly the same size, manufacturer, production year, equipment and speed. The only difference is - one of them is an Open version while the other is a Cabin Lounge version. We're really happy you've had a nice day with us, but to rate us lower for not taking the time to look at all of the photos makes me cringe a bit. Wish you all the best. Kind regards, Angelo

Amazing day!

This was an absolutely wonderful day, one of the highlights of our family vacation. I will start of by saying that there are countless island boat tour options in Split (and Croatia in general). They all offer the same general itinerary options and use similar equipment (identical to a non-pro). What makes the experience is the people and the way they are able to adjust to your needs and to the situation. Angelo, the owner of this boat and operator of this tour is absolutely wonderful. He is personable, sharp, and a true professional. He was able to figure out solutions to problems as they arose (weather, etc) and work with the whole group to ensure everyone is happy. However, Angelo's most important quality is his ability to hire great people. Our boat was run by Tino and Pia, who trully made the journey special and fun. While Tino captained the vessel and superbly took care of all things technical, Pia ran the boat and the group. She was, all at once, hostess, first mate, tour guide and MC. She gave everyone personal attention, took care of every need, and even took on an obnoxious yacht captain who wouldn't obey local ordinances at one of the tour sights. And then there was the grilled lunch. Please do not mistake for the American staple of "hot dogs" and burgers made from frozen patties. The grilled fish was gourmet. Best I had in 12 days in Croatia. And then of course there was the swimming and the snorkeling and the all the other advertised stuff.

Dear Dr_J, Thank you for your feedback. You praising us for being different, professional, personal and resourceful is EXACTLY what we always had in mind. 😁 I appreciate calling me sharp, but hiring great people is not my most important quality. I'm a great father to my son and pretty good at math, too. 😂 Jokes aside, we're (all of us) happy to learn you've enjoyed your day. We love relaxed and non-complicated guests like you. A big thank you and kind regards from Angelo & SplitSeaTours Team
